Laser Skin Treatments Q & A

How do laser skin treatments work?

New laser technology allows the team at Mannheim Med Spa to control the depth, strength, and area of the laser energy, precisely targeting your problem spots. The laser energy travels harmlessly through the surface of your skin, heating up and destroying the cells underneath. This minimally invasive technique leaves the surface area intact as it goes to work below, using your body’s natural healing response to improve your skin from the inside out.

What problems can laser skin treatments fix?

At Mannheim Med Spa, the team of cosmetic experts provides laser skin treatments for the following problems:

Spot removal

As you age, brown spots may begin to form on your skin. Brought on by ultraviolet rays, the melanin in your skin tends to clump as you get older, leaving you with skin mottled by brown spots. The laser energy targets the pigment in these areas. Once your pigment absorbs the laser energy, the cells are destroyed and your body naturally flushes them out, leaving clear skin in their wake.


Facial veins are broken capillaries under your skin. Using laser energy, your aesthetician breaks up the blood vessels, allowing your body to flush them out naturally through your lymphatic system.

Skin tightening

On a broader scale, laser energy that travels into the deeper layers of your skin prompts your body to respond with renewed collagen production, which is responsible for the tone and elasticity in your skin.

How many laser skin treatments do I need?

The answer to this depends on the extent of the issue you want to treat. During your initial consultation, your specialist sits down with you to review your problem area and comes up with an appropriate treatment plan.

Most clients undergo several treatments, spaced several weeks apart, in order to fully address their issues.

When can I expect to see results after my laser skin treatments?

Since laser technology taps into your body’s own resources, including renewed collagen production, healthy cell growth, and flushing out old skin cells, your results are gradual as your body goes to work. Most patients see optimal results six to 12 weeks after their last treatment.
